E dressed up as a dead nurse and called herself Nurse Scabs. She is wearing the actual dress and cap I wore for my nursing school graduation ceremony 11 years ago. I was a skinny bitch.
E and one of her BFF's dressed as Death. Yes, that is her real hair.
I made these cupcakes for T's kindergarten class Halloween party. I stayed and helped out during the party. Guess where I got my cold? T has a boy in his class with severe peanut allergies so I was very careful to keep any nuts out of my ingredients. I felt bad that two of the three other moms who signed up to bring items, were less considerate. One sent store bought cookies clearly labeled with a peanut allergy warning. The other sent goody bags containing MM's which are made in a factory which also makes peanut products. The third mom sent fruit, which the kids loved, especially the watermelon.
I hate to speak bad of other mom's, well maybe not, but the teacher sent home several reminders about the child's allergies.
I made these cupcake toppings by taking store bought rice krispie treats and first cutting each one into fourths. Then I shaped some into ovals, some into rounds and left some square. For the ghosts I rolled out store bought white fondant frosting and cut them with a biscuit cutter. I then shaped that over the oval krispie treat and added eyes with black frosting. The witches hats were made with black fondant (wear gloves when mixing black food coloring to white fondant or your hands will be dark purple for a week like mine!) I rolled out the black fondant and cut with biscuit cutter also then just rolled a piece into a pointed hat top. I used regular colored frosting to cover the square krispies and round for the Frankenstein and Witches. I used orange colored frosting for the pumpkins. I colored some more fondant green for the witches noses and pumpkin stems and leaves. Lastly, I used the remainder of orange frosting for the witches hair and Franks eyes. I also used rolled black fondant to cut out the triangles for the pumpkins. This recipe was modified from a magazine recipe. If I still had the magazine, or remembered the name, I would give it credit.
Yes it was a pain in the ass but I do enjoy doing this, if only a couple times a year!
